    Where the Heel did you go, Raymond Felton? 

    Those of you that watch Sportscenter (one word or two?) probably know very well where Raymond Felton is because he’s taking names in the NBA. As point guard for the Charlotte Bobcats, Ray has been getting some great compliments from his coach, Larry Brown. Not an easy task, considering Brown is known to be one of the toughest coaches on points guards in the game.

    Felton has the squad playing pretty well. Charlotte just beat a very good Denver Nuggets team, against another former UNC PG Ty Lawson no less. The Bobcats have won six of their last eight games. Needless to say, one of those came when they visited the Wizards Nov. 28. Rafters blogger Matt and I made our way to the Verizon Center to catch the game and took some super sweet video of our boy Felton from our “upgraded” seats in the lower level.  So please, do check it out below:

    Look closely and you’ll see another former Tar Heel, Brendan Haywood, in that second video. And now, the highlight of the Wizards’ night!……

    Tar Heel Tipoff Videos 

    Here are some pretty sweet videos to check out when you’ve got about ten minutes to kill. Tar Heel basketball writer Adam Lucas and Jones Angell from the Tar Heel Sports Network host the videos, introducing each clip with around 50 seconds of commentary that is definitely skippable (nothing against the guys, but the videos speak for themselves).

    No Tarheel fan can stand to miss “Summer Pick-Up with the Pros.” The video shows some of the best evidence for UNC being the top NBA talent producer – Brandon, Marvin, Ty, Vince, Rashad, Jawad, Raymond, Antawn – ALL on the same court. Even Hall of Famer Larry Brown is seen chatting up some players. It’s priceless to see Larry Drew II and Zeller describe their attempts at guarding Tar Heel legends. And, in an incredibly surprising and somewhat awkward moment, we see none other than Matt Dougherty clowning around with Sean May at around the 3:12 mark.

    Definitely check out “The Art of Shot Blocking,” as it is the best Ed Davis highlight reel I’ve seen thus far. We here at The Rafters can’t get enough of this kid, and you should expect to see much of the same this coming season.

    no way, jose.

    Harrison Barnes Blogs UNC Visit 

    So yeah, today is the first day of the blog and I should probably be talking about Late Night with Roy, but I live in D.C. and it’s kinda hard. So I’m gonna post about Harrison Barnes’ UNC visit. Which he recently blogged about. My thoughts……

    Harrison-Barnes-07081-717582
    Seriously!?! How can this kid not pick UNC? He visited during alumni weekend, when all the former greats were either on hand and playing or in attendance. I guess it’s a little slanted, because I’ve always looked up to the UNC greats and worshipped them since I was about eight years old, BUT c’mon! Jordan, Dean Smith, Larry Brown, Jamison, Carter, I’m not continuing. Harrison Barnes. COME TO UNC. You will not regret it. McCorkle Place is beautiful in the Spring time. The Pit will provide you with hours of people watching. Just do it. Just……do…….it, an appropriate slogan as the UNC team wears Jordan Brand.

    Whatever, it’s up to you. I’m just saying.
